Welcome to Travel Tuesday!


 
Welcome to Travel Tuesday!!
Mama is starting a "new trend" to document all the cool stuff we do! We know these might be a bit ummmmmm....well, let's just say Mama takes LOTS of pictures and has a hard time knowing when to stop. We are going to try and keep them to a minimum...but that Mama has a mind of her own!!

Feel free to post your own Travel Tuesday if you want and use our badge...if enough peeps and pets want to join us, Mama will start a Blog Hop!


 The next 10 weeks or so will be all about our (Dory and Mama's) 14 States in Ten Days Road Trip! 
Mama and I drove to pick up some things in Wisconsin and then drove back!! We had a great time and saw bunches of our beautiful country!!



 
Here is a map of our first day of driving we started at our home (A) and drove ALL the way to Reno (B)!!
Because it was just us girls, we stayed to the major highways where there would always be cell phone service....well except for the first couple hours where we had to drive through the mountains!





We left EARLY in the morning....so I was still a little tired!




This is one of the mountains we passed by during the first part of the trip.




"Mama, I have to go potty"
(Don't worry...this is as far as I can go forward since I am buckled in for safety! Also, Mama took this while we were stopped for road construction :-))




Thank goodness there was a rest stop close by....we stopped so Mama and I could
stretch our legs and "use the facilities". Mama brought a brand new box of potty bags for me...the girlie kind that smell like perfume!!  
Here I am looking at the beautiful view from the rest area!




Beautiful mountains!!!





Mama says I asked this a lot!!!




After the mountains we spent time driving down Interstate 5 heading south towards Sacramento! They have lots of cool rest areas on I-5!
 This one looked like a ranch!!




I could have stayed there for hours just reading the pee-mail!!!
But Mama said we had to go in order to make it to Reno by dark!
So, we hopped back in the car and hit the road!






Once we got into Sacramento, we hung a left onto Interstate 80.
Before long, we came upon pretty mountains and lakes!!!



There was even some leftover snow!!!



Before I knew it...(there may have been a nap involved)...we were at the hotel!!!!





Mama and I ate dinner and then snuggled in for the evening...
Mama even brought my Mini-Brothers so I wouldn't get lonely!!!



Nighty night!!!



Thanks so much for joining us for Travel Tuesday and we hope to see you next week for
Day 2 of 14 States in 10 Days!!

Your mom sounds crazy like mine! A 19 hour day in the car, no problem! Travel across the country in a couple days, no problem. Yikes! Can't believe you probably passed real close to my house and I didn't notice! Love your mini brothers too, cute idea to bring them along.

Fourteen states in ten days why that is like around the world in 80 days. Bet you left a lot of pee mail in many a place to be picked up. We like seeing other areas of the world.
Thanks for wishing me well yesterday it is a real bugger getting shot in the bum.

Oh, I love these trips shots. We actually had planned some short trips with Ruby for the blog, but until the dog flu is under control everything is on hold. Once it's safe to move about the area, we will definitely join in on Travel Tuesday.

OMD I got late visiting again...... but oh my word how exciting is this??? I was just thinking, Dory, that mum had not been showing us much of her personal photography for some time, so it is lovely that you are letting her share on your bloggy! As always, you are rocking the fashion for your trip! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
